Tennis stars Venus Williams and Andy Roddick will headline Mylan WTT Smash Hits presented by GEICO, a charity night of tennis co-hosted by longtime friends Sir Elton and Billie Jean King on Sunday, November 17, at the HP Field House of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.
The event will be hosted locally by Robert and Tricia Earl. Tennis action is set for 6 p.m. ET with the pre-match VIP Reception and Auction kicking off at 4:30 p.m.
Last year’s Smash Hits in Pittsburgh raised a record $1 million, bringing the 20-year total to more than $11.5 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and various local AIDS charities since 1993. This year, proceeds will go to the EJAF and the Hope and Help Center of Central Florida. A portion of the funds raised at the pre-match VIP Reception and Auction will be specifically targeted for local programs. A piano bench signed by Elton will be among the items available at auction.
Tickets for Mylan WTT Smash Hits go on sale at 10 a.m. ET on Monday, September 9. All seats are reserved and range from $50-$125.
